Shared note

In the 1900 US Federal Census for Township 11, Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory, 54-year-old Arkansas-born A J [Andrew Jackson] and his 50-year-old Missouri-born Henretta [Lewis] McCaslin have been married 23-years old. They have had six children, all six are living. Living with them are three of their Arkansas-born daughters, 29-year-old Sarrah [sic] [McCaslin] Smith, 22-year-old Parry [sic] Lee [McCaslin] Lewis and 16-year-old Edith McCaslin, and Sarah Smith's Indian Territory-born children, 7-year-old Charles and one-year-old Mertie. Sarah has been married eight years, and borne four children, only two are living, Charles and Mertie, but her husband is not in the household. Perry Lee is a widow who has borne two children, none are living. Andrew is a farmer who is farming rented land and has had no months without work in the past year. Sarah is a day laborer who has had six months without work in the past year. Perry and Edith are farm laborers and have had no months without work in the past year. No one has attended school. Everyone except Charles and Mertie can read, write and speak English. Andrew's parents were born in Ohio [sic]; Henrietta's parents were born in Missouri; Sarah, Perry and Edith's father was born in Arkansas and their mother in Missouri; Charles and Mertie's father was born in Kansas and their mother in Arkansas. The McCaslin household is living next to that of Andrew and Henrietta's daughter, Minerva [McCaslin] Baker and her husband, William W Baker.
